The chef doesn't mind sharing his privacy

Jamie Oliver doesn’t mind his wife reading through his texts and emails.

The celebrity chef, 37 – who has been married to wife Jools, 37, for 12 years – argues that the practice has become a common part of marital relationships.

‘Basically, every woman checks her husband’s texts and emails, but doesn’t admit it,’ he says.

‘It’s normal wifely behaviour, isn’t it?’

But Jamie insists wife Jools isn’t the jealous type and is just trying to keep up to date with his hectic schedule.

He even jokes that he wouldn’t have the time to play away anyway.

‘If you’re truly busy in your work and trying to be a decent husband or parent, there is no time for an affair,’ he tells Weekend.

‘Where people find time to get among it, I don’t know.’
